Spring in the Bog

I haven’t much information on this slide except it that it was composed around 1820’s date unfortunately slightly torn away. The composer’s name is also unintelligible as the ink that it was written with has run with dampness. The manuscript itself, is also covered with mildew, though I think I have managed to put the notes in the right positions as it is very hard to read from the original.
Please inform me if I haven’t, although it sounds alright to me, as my hearing is not so good as it used to be.

“Spring on the Bog” / “Spring in the Bog” ~ what’s your source? :-/

Alternate name, from Johnny O’Leary

This is in the Johnny O’Leary tune book under the title Kilcummin Slide. It is clearly different from the "other" Kilcummin Slide listed on this website. I have recorded it on my "A Stroll in the Park" album.
